Thanks,
ApneaGuy

Hi apneaguy, welcome to Apnea Board.

I think the AirCurve 10 CS Pacewave is a non-USA model which is similar to the USA model AirCurve 10 ASV. I am not aware of any real difference between these two models, other than intended country of use. (Different countries will require different cellular modem types or frequencies.)

I am not familiar with the AirCurve 10 CS-A model. I would suppose it will function similar to the S9 VPAP ST-A with iVAPS (intelligent Volume-Assured Pressure Support).

Below is a link to the ResMed detailed brochure explaining ST-A iVAPS therapy mode:

http://www.resmed.com/content/dam/resmed...er_eng.pdf

The S9 VPAP ST-A is similar to an ASV machine operating in standard ResMed ASV mode (standard ResMed ASV mode has fixed manually-set EPAP), with the difference being that in ResMed ASV mode when a central apnea starts the Pressure Support will automatically self-adjust as high as needed in order to maintain 90% of the patient's own recent Minute Volume (the total volume of air breathed in one minute) but in ST-A iVAPS mode when a central apnea starts the Pressure Support will automatically self-adjust itself as needed in order to maintain a manually-set target Tidal Volume (the average volume of air breathed in or out, each breath) and a respiration rate of 15 breaths per minute.

In ResMed ST-A iVAPS mode, EPAP is manually-adjusted and does not auto-adjust in order to minimize obstructive events, unlike the ResMed ASVAuto, standard bi-level Auto or AutoSet modes.

Take care,
